you don’t go to a region and not try it’s most famous food. so i had to cave one day and eat choucroute – sauerkraut, potatoes, and meat. my host V told me that you can’t get good choucroute in a restaurant, as it is a family meal type of food…. but hey, restaurant choucroute is better than no choucroute!
my dream house in france would be this blue. this gorgeous blue. or turquoise, whatever the official name is. and inside it would be white. and just as gorgeous. (however, i have not forgotten about my dream red house in quebec)
as much as i love collaging photos, sometimes a photo is so strong by itself that to put anything next to it would hurt it. this is one of those photos. and i’m so in love with it. not only does it have the perfect sky, it’s got two lovely houses (with my dream color) and a very very adorable old couple. from all the photos i took over toussaint, this one is my undeniable favorite.
and i had myself a nice tart and a kugelhopf! V’s tip to me for the perfect kugelhopf: it must be dry but not too dry…! so i did lots of sampling… and here is an example of a good one. but you can’t tell by looks, only taste. so eat up!
